Born today, you never appear to be working very hard, even when you are getting the most dramatic of results -- but the fact is that you work tirelessly to learn, to grow, to better yourself and to hone your skills. The result of this, of course, is the impression of "ease" -- you seem to float through life with little care and even less effort. The truth is, rather, that you are very much like a duck, who seems to cross a pond with hardly a ripple, all the while paddling furiously beneath the surface! You are quite talented, and you know how to put your talents to good use -- but you do so your way, and you will not be told that what works for someone else must work for you. You believe in the sanctity of one's personal methods; your way is your way, and you would never suggest that someone else should adopt it as well -- unless, of course, it happened to work just as seamlessly as it does for you!
You always seem to know what is going on, both above and beneath the surface, and yet you usually choose not to involve yourself in any hidden or clandestine affairs. You want to live your life simply and aboveboard at all times; the complexities of deceit are not for you! As far as you are concerned, honesty is indeed the best policy.
Also born on this date are: Kevin Kline, actor; F. Murray Abraham, actor; Moss Hart, playwright.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 25
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Your advice may not be sought right away by those facing a current crisis, but you must stand ready for those who decide to turn your way.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You have something up your sleeve that you're waiting to reveal at just the right moment. A rival competes with an ally for your attention.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may be brought to task today by someone who doesn't appreciate your behavior -- and indeed, much of it is certainly out of character right now.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may have to keep your desires well hidden for a while, until such time as you are released from a certain restriction.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Though others are trying to steer you in a certain direction today, you should be able to remain independent and do only what you want to do.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You receive an offer that is simply too good to pass up -- even though accepting may require you to make a last-minute change to your schedule.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You're expecting a delivery today, but those in charge of transportation are not likely to give you all the information you need.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Some things you'll want to keep under wraps today, but others you'll want to share with those who are intimately involved in your affairs.
